G45Tip: Use the Graphic 45 square tags to make elegant pockets for your folios and mini albums. Score the Tag at 3 1/2" from the bottom, then fold. Use your Graphic 45 square tag die to diecut the inserts. I like to diecut two inserts, using two contrasting G45 papers. This adds interest to the pockets. Eye-measure to trim the inserts at fold (of pocket), then glue them to the pocket. Also use glue to hold the fold over down.


I have a video that shows how I do this here.
